Engine does not turn over in freezing weather Sign In

I own a 1995 GMC Sierra1500 SLE. On days when the weather is below freezing the lights, gauges, heater, radio all work when I turn on the key, but the engine will not turn over, but as soon as the weather gets above freezing the engine will turn over and start and everything works normal. I thought it was a starter problem so I replaced it and the same problem occurs.

It's a pretty basic circuit. Likely an ignition switch or trans position sensor or any wiring in between.

How is the battery? Could have a battery that is weak or sulfated and doesn't have the CCA to operate the starter.
